Question PC freezes randomly

Jan 31, 2021
My computer keeps freezing very inconsistently lately. At first I thought that it was when it had moderate workloads, but today I was running minecraft + 5 google tabs while steam and discord were also running and it didn't happen, however that same day, I ran nothing but among us and it froze somehow. The freeze is a bit weird. It lets me use what I already have open, but as soon as I try to open or close a window, I notice it. Eventually, it starts messing with what I already have open, like making the scroll wheel not work and not being able to click things. Every time the freeze happens it requires a hard reboot. It can't be a software problem, because I have checked my pc with PC Matic and Malwarebytes, and even after that, done a fresh install of windows. my primary suspects are the graphics card, the ram, or the ssd, but I could be completely wrong. Can any of you help with this?

My system specs:
CPU - Ryzen 5 2600 six-core
GPU - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
RAM - 16gb 2400MHz DIMM
MOBO - Aorus b450 pro wifi
